Last weekend we decided to go into the city and show Nola the sea lions at Pier 39. We often have this misconception that trekking into the city is too much with a baby. But we were pleasantly surprised to see that it wasn’t bad with parking and Nola rocked it. In fact it went so well we hope to make this a regular activity.
We parked near the Bay Bridge and walked to Pier 39, which there and back is a nice 4 mile walk. On our way to Pier 39 we also hit up the Ferry Building. The Ferry Building has an awesome farmer’s market on Saturday’s and inside they have the greatest shops and restaurants. This place has this energy filled with people getting excited about food and I really love that. The Ferry Building is probably one of my most favorite places.
Once we got to Pier 39 we got donuts from Trish’s Mini Donuts, and they were warm and delicious and melt in your mouth. I warn you, however, that the bucket of 32 mini donuts is too much for 2 people and resulted in a not so good rest of the day for me, with food sadly I have no self control. 🙁 Regardless we had a great day and the bucket is now Nola’s favorite new toy.
